Single, Double or Handicap Accessible rooms are all $114 per night (plus taxes).  Room rate includes full, hot breakfast buffet for all.  Group rates are good from September 8 through September 20, 2018.

To make your reservation, call (800) 689-5586 and mention the Bomb Groups Reunion.

All walks in this hotel are short, but if you have mobility issues, be sure and ask them to house you close to the elevators.  Handicap accessible rooms are available.  Please ask if you need these accommodations.  They won’t know your needs if you don’t tell them.

Reservations absolutely MUST be made NO LATER THAN August 16, 2018. Reservations after that date are NOT guaranteed at the group rate and are subject to room availability. There are no overflow hotel options available in downtown Dayton so to be sure that you get the room you want at the group rate, reserve before this date. Any reservation may be cancelled WITHOUT PENALTY if cancellation is made 24 hours or more before the check-in date.

Complementary valet parking is available. This is a downtown hotel. The parking garage is across the street with a 2nd floor enclosed skywalk to the hotel. You can leave your car at the front door, check in and they will park your car for you. Of course you can always park yourself if you prefer.

Complimentary airport shuttle is available, but you’ll need to call the hotel in advance with your flight information to reserve a ride to the hotel.

It is recommended that you reserve your room early.  We have a good sized room block but we ended up running out of rooms last year as too many people waited until close to the reunion time to book and no more rooms were available.  IF YOU BOOK A ROOM AND FIND LATER THAT YOU MUST CANCEL, YOU MAY DO SO WITH NO PENALTY UP TO 72 HOURS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL.  So please, PLEASE, book your room now so if we run out of rooms in the block again, there will be time to add more.
